St Bride's, Fleet Street is a warm and welcoming Christian community, and one of the most famous and most fascinating historic churches in Central London. 

St Bride's is known worldwide as the Journalists' Church, offering a spiritual home to all who work in the media. However, our ministry extends to everyone who lives and works within our parish, and to the thousands of visitors who come to us every year. Our beautiful Wren church provides a place of peace and a spiritual haven in the heart of the city for all who come. With one of the best professional choirs in the country, we are also well known for the outstanding quality of our music and of the worship we offer.

A place of Christian worship for 1500 years, we continue to proclaim the love of God here today. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made very welcome.Alison Joyce

Since Easter, St Bride's has contained more scaffolding than we would have believed possible as part of a major maintenance project to restore the interior of the church.

The wonderful news is that the work is almost complete and the transformation is astounding!  Hirst Conservation have done a magnificent job in restoring the interior to its dazzling former glory on schedule. Our renewed thanks to all who contributed so generously to the cost of the renovation.

The church is fully open for business; Space for Silence occurs weekdays at 5pm and Tours and Recitals resume in August.

Join us for a special celebratory 'Bright and Beautiful' service on Sunday 25th September at 11:00am. Further Information →

'Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars's and to God what belongs to God,' (Mark 12:17)

This text is often misinterpreted. The second part of the pronouncement is in fact the more significant. It is our offering to God that is of greatest importance. In Acts, Peter says 'we must obey God rather than men.' Our offering to God is the offering of ourselves, putting God first in all that we do: everything else, including our civic responsibilities flows from that.

Lord God, help us to live our lives based on the values you teach us through your Son, so that our lives may be an offering of worship and thanksgiving. Amen.

Interested in Confirmation?

The next Confirmation Service will be held at St Paul's Cathedral at 5:00 pm on Saturday 5th November 2016.

We already have a group of adults and children who have expressed an interest in being confirmed so if you, or anyone you know might be interested in Confirmation, or just in finding out more, please encourage them to get in touch with Alison.

Confirmation preparation sessions will begin in September (and, as always, will be open to any who feel in need of a 'refresher course' as well as those who are seeking Confirmation).
